While his camp claims he still has no timetable for return, Tiger Woods has taken the necessary steps to enter the 2016 U.S. Open field.
Though agent Mark Steinberg denied reports that the 14-time major winner is definitely playing in the Wells Fargo Championship in early May, Woods has registered to compete in this year's U.S. Open at Oakmont Country Club, Golfweek reports. Woods filed on April 4 for the tournament, which runs June 16-19.
In recent weeks, speculation has ramped up regarding Woods return. Tim Rosaforte mentioned the possibility of Tiger playing at Quail Hollow on May 5-8; another tournament that makes sense is the Memorial, which Woods has won five times.
Woods hasn't played on tour since the Wyndham Championship in August. The last time the U.S. Open was held at Oakmont in 2007, Woods finished one stroke behind Angel Cabrera for the title.
